AntonBekq, 20 Sep 2014Hi!! I've got the phone about a week. It just perfect. But i have one problem. I have installe... more1.18.40 Firmware does not have this issue.
This was only original pre 1.14 firmware that was default installed in factory, that had this nonsense.
Install 1.18.40 update (FULL 700 MB, NOT FOTA), and update all the apps when you're done.
The issue should go away.
aulia, 20 Sep 2014Dear Tomazz,
I hv done all instruction from u to update the firmware. When i eject from cable... moreHas the firmware been loaded for the same SKU?
Meaning the international version should use WW firmware, the Chinese version CN firmware, etc…
It's also quite important that you use a good quality USB cable and make sure that the file isn't corrupt.
Inside the ZIP file there's another ZIP file, that's the one that you copy.
If your phone can boot, I would recommend you do the factory reset, and if not, press the power and down volume when turning the phone on to get into the system recovery - there use Recovery mode, to restore the phone from the recovery partition.
But I'd be near certain that this is either corrupt file (less likely) or the wrong SKU (most likely).

user, 19 Sep 2014It didnt work Sorry for late responses, just returned from a trip.
Sorry to hear that it did not work for you. I think in that case it would be best to contact Asus, unless you have another SIM card to test with, to see if it's about your specific SIM card, or it's a broken slot.

Don't update OTA, but instead load full firmware then.
You will only get notification for system update if the version you're installing is newer than one currently installed.
